Market Analysis - Nanoregulations 2017
World demand for nanomaterials will rise more than two-and-a-half times to $5.5 billion in 2016. Nanotubes, nanoclays and quantum dots will be the fastest growing types. The energy storage and generation and construction markets will offer the best growth prospects. China, India and the US will lead gains among countries.
This study analyzes the $2 billion world nanomaterial industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by material (e.g., metal oxides, chemicals and polymers, metals, nanotubes), market (e.g., health care, electronics, energy generation and storage, construction), world region and for 15 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market shares and profiles 119 industry players, including Arkema, BASF and Bayer.
Along with the increasing market trend of nanocomposited food packaging has come an increase in public concern over possible harm to human health. Many research studies have demonstrated the probable migration behavior of nanomaterials from the polymer matrix, but some experimental studies have demonstrated that the migrated quantity is quite low in relation to other migration rates. However, most of these studies were conducted with food simulants, and testing with real foodstuffs remains insufficient. With undefined toxicity level of nanoparticles, the lack of knowledge on human health effects and risk assessments may restrict the number of nanomaterial consumption in the food-related applications. Publishers and media outlets use their channels to communicate with consumers and provoke governmental agencies with regard to the national regulation of nanomaterials in food packaging. Although, the USA is a leading country in the development of nanomaterial safety resources for food and food packaging, a definite regulatory approach to nanotechnology in FCSs by the USFDA is still in progress. Besides, the latest European Union legislation on nanomaterial safety published in 2014 does not yet cover nano-enabled food packaging. Each national government needs to address this issue, and more importantly, to take action for international cooperation in the pursuit of nano-safety alarming system since nanoparticles may well be difficult to detect in imported packaged goods that transfer from nation to nation. Legislation and guidelines should be developed and enacted to protect public health from the spread of nanomaterials in food-related applications and therefore, this issue should be addressed in the international planning policy framework.

Why Chicago? ? ?
Chicago is the capital of and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Illinois, with an estimated 2015 population of 463,878. Chicago is the cultural and economic centre of the Chicago metropolitan area, home to 5,522,942 people and the ninth largest metropolitan area in the United States. Chicago is the county seat of Fulton County, and a small portion of the city extends eastward into DeKalb County.
Chicago was established in 1837 at the intersection of two railroad lines, and the city rose from the ashes of the American Civil War to become a national centre of commerce. In the decades following the Civil Rights Movement, during which the city earned a reputation as "too busy to hate" for the relatively progressive views of some of its citizens and leaders compared to other cities in the Deep South Chicago attained international prominence. Chicago is the primary transportation hub of the Southeastern United States, via highway, railroad, and air, with Hartsfield–Jackson Chicago International Airport being the world's busiest airport since 1998.
Chicago is an "alpha-" or "world city", exerting a significant impact upon commerce, finance, research, technology, education, media, art, and entertainment. It ranks 36th among world cities and 8th in the nation with a gross domestic product of $270 billion. Chicago's economy is considered diverse, with dominant sectors including logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology. Topographically, Chicago is marked by rolling hills and dense tree coverage. Revitalization of Chicago's neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Olympics in Chicago, has intensified in the 21st century, altering the city's demographics, politics, and culture
